It seems like yesterday when we were all sitting along the North Shore, enjoying our ribs at the Rib Fest, or prancing along Point State Park staying cool near the fountain in what seemed to be 100-degree-heat.
Alas, all good things must come to an end unfortunately, which means winter has officially descended upon the Burgh. With the 15-degree days and the wild snowstorms that have plagued the area, it’s certainly time to take shelter.
And by shelter, we mean with a nice hot cup of coffee, by taking refuge in your favorite coffee shops in the Burgh.
Espresso A Mano
Nestled amongst the hipsters of Lawrenceville, Espresso A Mano offers a quiet hideaway for those looking to escape into their books or their computer.
Another hipster hideaway in Lawrenceville comes in the shape of Artisan Café – here, you can get some of the best coffee around, provided by Madcap beans. In the mood for a tattoo as well? There is tattoo parlor on the upper level.
Commonplace Coffeehouse & Roastery
If you are in the mood to gaze and people watch while sipping on your macchiato, then head to Commonplace Coffeehouse & Roastery. Giant picture windows overlook Buena Vista Street, offering the most scenic in the city.
Whitfield at The Ace Hotel
Everything at The Ace Hotel screams cool, from the guests to the food. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the coffee bar is just as cool, nestled in the lobby where guests mingle nightly amongst live entertainment.
Are you THAT friend who is constantly looking to snap the best Instagram pic? Then head over to 4121 Main, where the floral assortments and interior scream likes and love for your social media craze.
Nothing quite screams Pittsburgh like Zeke’s. As a coffee hotspot, this spot not only freshly roasts their beans, but also names their roasts after famous spots in the city, such as Black’N Gold and Three Rivers Roast.
In the mood to learn more about coffee? Head to Tazza d’Oro in Highland Park to see coffee demos, for all those curious to know how to perfect that perfectly brewed blend.
